Restaurant Brands International Inc. (RBI) is a Canadian-American multinational fast food holding company. It was formed in 2014 by the $12.5 billion merger between American fast food restaurant chain Burger King and Canadian coffee shop and restaurant chain Tim Hortons, and expanded by the 2017 purchase of American fast-food chain Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. The company is the fifth-largest operator of fast food restaurants in the world behind Subway, McDonald’s, Starbucks and Yum! Brands. RBI is based alongside Tim Hortons in Toronto (previously Oakville, Ontario). For tax purposes, Burger King and Popeyes retain their existing operations and headquarters, both in Miami. The 2014 merger focused primarily on expanding the international reach of the Tim Hortons brand and providing financial efficiencies for both companies.
3G Restaurant Brands Holdings LP, an affiliate of the Brazilian investment company 3G Capital, owns a 32% stake in Restaurant Brands International. The company is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange.
In January 2019, Jose Cil was named the CEO of Restaurant Brands International, and Daniel Schwartz was named the executive chairman of the company.
